Chavez Jr. said. “A victory gets me one step closer to a world championship, and I’m not going to let anyone stand in my way. I know that Danny Jacobs is a former world champion and is a strong fighter with very good boxing skills. Those are the kind of boxers that bring out the best in me. I’ve been working hard in the gym and can’t wait to let everyone see what I’ve been working on. I’m very motivated to get the win, and at the end of the night I will have my hand raised in victory. I ask my fans to believe in me. I will deliver.”
How will this fight play out?
This is the perfect welcome fight for Jacobs to super middleweight and he has the clear advantage here. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr is past his prime, even then he never lived up to his fathers legacy with lack of activity not working in his favour either.
Both fighters went to the decision with Canelo Alvarez, however that doesn’t paint a clear picture of their performances. Expect Jacobs to work Chavez Jr and get a late stoppage or knockout over the Mexican boxer.
If Jacobs can secure an impressive victory over Chavez Jr there is a chance he could claim for a Canelo rematch as both fighters are still on DAZN network for sometime in 2020.
